I have to engage the “Zero” button a full second or a tad longer to get it to zero, then its dead on at 30, 45, 60 and 90 degrees compared to drafting triangles. The cut or jointed edges meat nicely. Ensure the gauge doesn’t touch or engage a blade tooth. Also the counter balance washer on the saw probably has a routed grove that the nut passes through to tighten the blade to the arbor. I learned after several missed cuts that it has to be “FULLY” engaged to get the blade really true. So maybe its the blade installation v.s. Wixey that is not truthful.

But, when you have finished with its use Please take the battery out. If put in storage in the “Off” position according to Wixey tech support some tend to continue to search for “Zero” and run the battery down, so the next time you intend to use it you’ll find no power.
